Name:Derek Seeds
Nickname:The Coach
Batting:Rh middle-order
Bowling:Leg-spin

\'The Coach\', who has a restraining order preventing him from going within 50 yards of the clubhouse at Swanscombe due to a misunderstanding regarding a barmaid and some nuts, is Eltham\'s Mr Fix-It (though thankfully not in the Hansie Cronje sense). From getting our home ground sorted to arranging tour accomodation, Del\'s talents are legendary. His ability to talk on the phone is also the stuff of Eltham legend.

A deceptively good slip fielder, The Coach has also played many match-saving innings in the middle order. He can also pop up with wickets with his viciously turning leg-breaks. Known to spend an hour in the car park rearranging his boot. Also sent Roy Harris of Natwest into cricket retirement following the incident photographed above.
